believe that barack obama was born in america? do you believe that the constitution can allow states to separate out from individual deals on the health care plan? they're all sort of hot-button issues designed to find tape that will allow democrats to identify and marginalize republicans as being part of some sort of fringe. >> yeah. i was just going to say, if that's their plan, i would hope the republicans would take that. those are easy questions to answer, i would think, unless you are an extremist. hey, let's go to another issue right now that has to help democrats out with independent voters, mike. i'm sure it is causing a firestorm on the left. there are a lot of conservatives that say it's not really that big of a deal. but it is with independents. barack obama's expected to propose a major spending freeze to rein in the deficit, freezing 19% of the budget to so-called -- ska with me here -- the domestic discretionary spending. talk about that plan and whether he's going to face a revolt from the left. >> well, he can hope so because you're right, the more flak he gets from
anything but to help protect america. >> by the way, this statement by brennaman is the very way this president leads. a number of times he has taken responsibility, said he is sorry, and moved on. and we've been often jarred by that. >> ironically, he will actually gain more political stature doing that, than by blaming george w. bush. it doesn't make a lot of sense, but at this point, when the white house blames george w. bush for anything, even if they have a good argument it makes them look small when they say, hey, the buck stops with me. doesn't it make the president seem more confident. it makes him seem like more of a leader. >> two quick things about that, joe. one a lot of people are sick about all of the references to the bush administration. it's over. it was a year ago. move on. that's in the rear view mirror. i was reminded about my conversation with a top-ranking national security official and it gets to the volume of threats. >> oh, yeah. >> i mean, just the sheer volume of threats that these people have to handle, administer and make decisions on each and every d
on television, and the losses are heartbreaking. i pledge america's continued commitment to the government and the people of haiti in the immediate effort to save lives and deliver relief and in the long-term effort to rebuild. president preval and i agreed it is absolutely essential that these efforts are well-coordinated among the united states and the government of haiti with the united nations, which continues to play an essential role and with the many national partners and aid organizations that are now on the ground. meanwhile american resources continue to arrive in haiti. search and rescue efforts continue to work pulling people out of the rubble. our team has stayed about the lives of american citizens and haitian citizens, often under extraordinarily difficult circumstances. this morning the aircraft carrier u.s.s. carl vincent arrived along with helicopters that will be critical in delivering assistance in the days to come. they are preparing to move badly needed water, food, and other life-saving supplies to priority areas in port-au-prince. food, water, and medicine continue
to add mitt that. well that's not what a lot of folks in america say. i think the last rasmussen poll had in popularity, we were 22%. tea parties 35 and democrats 32. so we clearly have a gap between the american people and party. and i think it's the responsibility of the national chair and chairs around the country to fix that. and the way you begin to do it is to acknowledge this is where we've made mistakes when you grow government and spend money and go against the principals so important to defining the party for generations you walk away and create problems and we sought results in 2006 and 2002348 losses at the pole and loss of confidence and faith in the party and so i think now we have an opportunity once we acknowledge where we've gone wrong and stand firmly on principals and lead into the future with positive ideas and a new direction. the american people will come to us and i think we've seen that in new jersey and virginia with their elections. host: you talk about the tea party groups in your book right now. are they the future of the republican party? guest: they are to
it is why america is coming under attack from osama bin laden. if use of his statement of the weekend saying again that he is attacking america because it is america that created israel. host: would you cut anything else besides that? caller: no, it is the biggest problem we have right now. host: obama to seek spending freeze to trim deficit, a three- year proposal. pentagon is among those exempt. they going to talk about all the politics in a book of the times" -- they say that the initiative holds risk as well as potential benefit because mr. obama plans to exempt military spending while leaving many popular domestic programs vulnerable. naples, fla., a republican caller. caller: he ought to start at home. his wife has more people working for her than any of the president's wife. the spinning she does i think it's horrible. he does not give it our troops to support. we need those troops. host: "the times" goes on to read that the government spending is out of control, could to been to his loss of support among independent supporters. the concern could put upward pressure on interest rates
the outcome could really mean, coming up. >> shepard: fox news is america's news headquarters. and republicans may well be on the verge of a ones unthinkable victory in massachusetts. taking back the seat that ted kennedy held for almost half a century. and that could cause new trouble for president obama's healthcare overhaul, among many other things injuries the kennedy family endorses, of course, the democrat. the attorney general martha coakley. in a state where democrats outnumber republicans three to one but republican scott brown has made a big comeback in the pollsion even as democratsed a might coakley has run a very poor campaign. look that the. back in november, coakley was up by almost 30 points. now, too close to call my most estimates. president obama campaigned with coakley yesterday and today she is using the video at a new ad. here, look. >> the attorney general, she took on wall street and recovered millions for massachusetts taxpayers. she went after big insurance companies and took on predatory lenders. that is what martha coakley is about. every vote matters we need you on
with newt gingrich on how america will change if the democrats lose ted kennedy's seat. the spooker is next. >> bill: continuing with this special edition of "the factor." joining us from washington, fox news analyst newt gingrich and author of the book rediscovering god in america. whatever happens tonight, mr. speaker, america will change. let's take a brown victory first. what do you think that will happen if brown wins in massachusetts? >> the first thing ought to be that every republican in the country ought to look at every district and every senate seat. you said a few weeks ago that it wasn't even going to be close people -- that it was even going to be close, people would have laughed at you. he has the courage to be an active state electo legislatore he is outnumbered and brave enough to run for the seat. you are in the middle of this tremendously big health bill. this is ted kennedy's seat. it is massachusetts. even the idea that this is close and my personal hunch is he will win tonight. even if it stays very, very close as carl cameron said, democrats are going to be shaking al
